And this year, with Halloween falling on a Saturday, you just know that the costumes have to be more amazing than ever.

Global Warming Resource KitThe LONDON SCHOOL OF ECONOMICS has put together a report entitled Fewer Emitters, Lower Emissions, Less Cost that draws what should be an obvious conclusion:

Global warming isn’t an environmental thing, or a byproduct solely due to advanced technology or corporate carbon emissions.

Their solution?  Stop breeding.

Lawsuit over the World’s Largest PEZ Dispenser


By web gangsta | Published:

Adult PEZ CostumeThe WORLD’S LARGEST PEZ DISPENSER is getting sued.

Well, not the dispenser itself, but the Burlingham, California people who built the World’s Largest PEZ dispenser and included it as a display in their INTERNATIONAL PEZ MUSEUM.

The company behind PEZ didn’t like the perceived copyright infringement that’s taking place, especially after this unauthorized reproduction received a GUINNESS WORLD RECORD for the Largest Candy Dispenser.   The reason behind the lawsuit is that it’s not an official PEZ product, so therefore should not be eligible for being recognized as a valid PEZ dispenser in the first place.

By web gangsta | Published:

The BorrowersYou know the drill:  somebody borrows your favorite cookbook, DVD, hammer, or pair of pants and keeps them for a while.

Maybe you’ve forgotten who you loaned things to.

Maybe they’ve forgotten who gave them things they have on the garage shelves.

Web Watch has books and DVDs that we know belong to other people, but we can’t keep track of who we need to give it back to.

We also know who we loaned our Tupperware out to a few years ago… and they STILL haven’t returned it.

This makes us angry.  DVDs, books, and pants are easily replaced.  Good Tupperware, not so much.
